  • Backhauls

    Hi All, I'm working on an opportunity to leverage some backhauls. We are sending a lot of shipments to customer locations and are not using the return trip very effectively resulting in increased deadhead, increased shipments etc etc.

    What recommendations would you have to try and leverage these backhaul opportunities - cooperative routing, continuous moves, depot backhauls etc? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Increase the number of shipment segments on Rate Offering. By default, this is one, which means that OTM will never allow a shipment to be empty during a multistop trip.

      Wow, that seems simple enough, I'll put together a few scenarios and try this. Thanks much

        You would also need to set some parameters to enable this. Please refer to thread: http://www.otmfaq.com/forums/f15/mul....html#post7149

          Hi Js,

          You can use depot backhauls as OTM support multistop in these depot backhauls, where the optimization of load can happen.
